Process Plant Technical Groups: Wind Energy – Challenges in Integrity Management Date: 15 March 2018 Venue: Granta Centre, TWI Ltd, Granta Park, Cambridge CB21 6AL
Wind energy is the world’s fastest growing renewable energy type and the UK, being one of the windiest countries in the world, is poised to increase its wind energy generation significantly. The reliability of wind energy generating structures and equipment has increased in light of experience gained from the relatively mature onshore wind and the more recent offshore wind farms. The cost of new offshore wind has fallen and it is now considered as one of the low-cost options for new power in the UK, enabling the UK wind sector to plan a cumulative deployed total capacity of 30 GW of offshore wind by 2030. Such aspirations require challenges to be addressed as offshore wind moves deeper and ongoing operational experience reveals new problems.
